Marshmallow Easter Eggs, Marshamallow Pops

    It's coming time to fill Easter Baskets.  How about making marshmallow eggs and putting them in a basket?  You can just as easily make other shapes-- bunnies, butterflies, or flowers.  Using whatever cookie cutters you have you can make your own spring marshmallow basket.
     Using the marshmallow recipe, spread the marshmallow out in a jelly roll pan lined with plastic wrap that has been sprayed cooking spray.  Let the marshmallow set up for two hours.  Use your favorite cookie cutter that has been sprayed with cooking oil.  Cut the marshmallows. Repeat process spraying between cuts.

     Now you are ready to decorate!
     Spread your marshmallows figures with white frosting* and add your favorite decorations.   Once decorated, insert kabob sticks, and ta-dah, marshmallow pops that can be put into a basket!

Possible decorations:
  •  Natural Sprinkles
  •  Crushed candy canes
  •  Shredded coconut with a few drops of natural dye
  •  Mini chocolate chips
  •  Chopped nuts
  •  Melted Chocolate chips
  • Add natural dye to the marshmallows as you are making them
*For frosting, I use 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and 2 Tbsp of rice milk whisked together.  You can make your frosting thicker or thinner as you like, by adding more or less milk.
